It's been months since we heard anything about the rumored iPad Pro, but that doesn't mean Apple's forgotten about the larger-and-in-charge tablet.

In fact the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is well on its way to a 2015 release date, according to Bloomberg.

The site got its info from those infamous "people with knowledge of the matter," who said the biggest-ever iPad will go intro production early next year.

They added the massive iPad, three inches larger than the current iPad Air, has been in the works for at least a year.

Biggest and bestest

Apple already sized the iPad down and made the excellent iPad mini, so why not go the other direction?

That's what they're doing with the iPhone 6. Every report we've seen for months - including this one from Bloomberg - seems to agree the iPhone is puffing itself up.

Unsurprisingly the site's sources also said the iPad mini 3 and iPad Air 2 will be out in time for the 2014 holidays, which will no doubt help iPad sales that have reportedly been down for two quarters in a row.

Meanwhile Apple's recent partnership with IBM looks like it could be intended to pave the way for the introduction of the iPad Pro.

No doubt we'll learn more as Apple is due for some September announcements shortly.
